Last week I had the opportunity to judge and assist with the tabulation at the August 2013 NFL Korea national championship. Students who reached the final rounds of competition are qualified to compete at the US NFL tournament in June of 2014.
The qualifying rounds for the individual events were held on August 11th at Korea University.
The qualifying rounds for debate were held on August 15th at Korea University.
On Sunday, August 17th, the final elimination debates were held at Korea University.
Sunday, August 18th featured the final rounds of competition as well as the awards.
During the lunch period, we have an exhibition debate between NFL China and NFL Korea students on the topic of censoring political and social dissent on the internet.
US NFL Executive Director Scott Wunn addressed the awards assembly.
I had the opportunity to present awards to students of all ages.
Congratulations to all of the participants and to Mr. Jay Yang (NFL Korea Chair), Ms. Heidi Son (NFL Korea CEO), Ms. Jin Oh (NFL Korea COO), So Jin Chai, and Hyo Jin Ju for putting together such a special event.
